Alvin T's Experience

Experience description:   

I was playing basketball at a local park.  I had been playing for about an hour and was thoroughly enjoying myself.  let me say here that I am no Michael Jordan but I am pretty good.  at some point in the game, I had the ball and drove toward the hoop on the right side of the court.  I went up with the shot, a one-handed lay up.  at the last second a defender jumped to block my shot.  I brought the ball down to my chest, the defender flew by and somehow I stayed in the air long enough to bring the ball back up with both hands and flip it in.  it remains one of, if not my best move ever! 

the out of body experience concerns another person.  as I made the shot I left my body and saw my own move through the eyes of a player waiting off court to play next.  I saw my own self through his eyes and "heard" his thoughts saying, "what a move!  I gotta cover that guy next game."  sure enough he did cover me during the next game.  and he was pumped up to try and stop me. ***chills as I write this!!!***

I really want to ask Michael Jordan if this has ever happened to him.
